There is a cover charge (even on weekdays) but it is worth it for the great live bands that play. Be ready to hit the dance floor! As far as bar food goes, theirs is pretty good. We hear great things about the chicken wings! Different nights have different things going on. Sunday is comedy night, so stop by if you love to laugh.
